His comments came as RedSeer organised "Ground Zero 4.0" event on Friday where Infosys Co-founder Nandan Nilekani discussed the theme of the event "Scaling Up" and how crucial a strategy it is for startups across all sectors.

India's consumer Internet economy showed strong resilience in 2020. The overall gross market transaction value dropped earlier last year due to the pandemic but recovered by the end of the year.


The event conducted sessions including a review of the past decade and the year 2020, how to scale retail, healthcare, edtech and how to build homegrown brands for global scale among others.

Among homegrown brands, online-first brands gained 30 per cent share of e-commerce which will grow to 45 per cent by 2025, according to RedSeer's research.

Direct-to-consumer (D2C) and digitally native brands (DNB) are now driving much of the e-commerce growth in India, it added.
